Hello, my name is Alissa Pulkrabek.
I am the Director here at Little Tykes.
I have a Masters degree in Youth Development, and I have worked with children for 22 years! I had an in home child care for over 15 years and I loved every minute of it, but decided that I wanted to make a bigger impact! In July of 2019, I obtained The National Directors Credential.
I have six children of my own including 5 sons and one daughter, and I also have seven bonus sons! I have one grandson and hope to have at least twice as many grandchildren as I have children! I love spending time with family and friends, doing crafts of all kinds, and spending my evenings at the lake by the fire!
I believe that educators should strive to help develop the whole child, heart, hands, and mind by fostering creativity and a love of learning! We strive every day to provide a lasting education in each child that comes through our center.
